Add notes to a pdf/a file

If you have had the problem where you have a PDF/A document that you can't add any notes to, there is a surprisingly easy fix.

All you need is Adobe Acrobat.

Open the file in Acrobat, then:
  1. Go to the edit menu.
  2. Select preferences | documents | PDF/A View Mode | View documents in PDF/A mode. Select "Never" from the dropdown list.
  3. You can now add notes or highlight the pdf.



Thanks for your feedback. The elves will post it shortly.
